I has award

Jolie Du Pre from Precious Monsters has nominated me for the Liebster Award. 
Thank you

Liebster Award Rules:

1. Thank the blogger who presented you with the Liebster Award, and link back to his or her blog.

2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator; list 11 random facts about yourself, and create 11 questions for your nominees.

3. Present the Liebster Award to 11 bloggers, who have blogs with 200 followers or less, whom you feel deserve to be noticed. Leave a comment on the blogs letting the owners know they have been chosen. (No tag backs.)

4. Upload the Liebster Award image to your blog.
Eleven Questions

1. What is the top item on your bucket list?

Finish a novel.  Really finish it. 
Not a Nano, beginning, middle and end kind of finish.

2. What do some people do that bugs you the most?

This is really petty, but, if you are the first one into work turn on the lights. 
I'm not sure why you think that it is my responsibility.  I am certain you are capable.
Demonstration provided upon request.

3. What do some people do that you love the most?

Random acts of kindness.  I just love it when someone says or does something nice for no reason.

4. If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

The ability to actually do something with my hair.  It has always had a mind of its own.

5. Do you believe in Astrology?

I do.  Don't tell my husband he will mock me ;)

6. Do you believe in monsters?

I do.  Don't go out in the woods tonight.   No, really.  Don't do it.

7. Who is your favorite male celebrity?

Is it sad to say I don't have one?  {{sighs}}

8. Who is your favorite female celebrity?

Oh noes.  I don't have one of these either.

9. Are you doing your dream job?

No.  But it is not bad as far as jobs go - most days.

10. What do you want people to say about you when you die?

That I made them laugh or brightened their day.

11. Do you want to live forever?

It would depend.  Would I continually get older and older and older?
And then there would be the whole discussion about at what age would you want to stop aging? 
Eleven Random Facts
1.  I remember useless facts. 
     Ask me how to cure a middle ear infection with home remedies.  I'm your gal.
     Ask me where I work or my phone number and I'll forget.
2. I enjoy sailing.
     Exotic locations and beach time is not bad either
3. I love animals. 
4.  I think I have tried every diet that has ever been devised.
     I'm still fat,  thank you for asking.  But some day...some day I will find the magical diet. 
     Preferably one that involves eating anything you want and no exercise. 
     I might be picky, but that is what I would like.
5.  I will try the strangest things because 'someone' said it would work.
     Did you know that vinegar sprayed on your car window will keep frost from forming?
     It doesn't - And your car will smell like a pickle for about a week.
6.  I have coffee with my son every Saturday.  Sometimes the other kids join in too.
7.  I have one G-Kid and 5 G-Kids by marriage.
8.  I love reading all kinds of books but my favorite genre is fantasy.
9.  I ran a marathon once a long time ago. 
     By the end it looked more like a zombie crawl, but I finished.
10.  I have gephyrophobia.  Fear of bridges. 
       Technically it is fear of only one bridge. 
       I fell off it and broke my arm.  I try to avoid it when possible.
11.  I like LOL kitties. 
       Don't judge me.

 To my eleven nominees, I hope you'll participate, but take your time. I know we are all busy and it takes a bit of time.  But it is fun too. 
(But please notify me when you're post is up!)


  1. Wow! I loved reading this. So proud of you for running a marathon. (That one is on my bucket list.) Your number 5 in your Eleven Random Facts is so funny. You have a great sense of humor!

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

      When you run your marathon chose one that isn't all hills like the Deseret News Marathon. That's the only advice I can give ;)

  2. Jai, thank you so much for the Liebster Award nomination. You can now see a post on my blog. I agree....The pickle smell on the windows really is funny :)

  3. Haha, I was always able to remember film quotes but my A*Level history course facts? Nothing.^^

    Thank you for nominating me. I've posted. :)

  4. Congratulations on the award and thank you so much for passing it on to me. You are just wonderful. I am sorry for getting over here so late.

  5. Great answers! I totally agreed with so many. Like the astrology one, and my boyfriend mocks me, too. LOL. Home remedies are the best, too, but glad to know the vinegar thing doesn't work...

  6. I do like home remedies when possible.
